When this used to be a website that would like, update content regularly?

Pssshhhhh

ONE: Contextual Advertising.  How could it go wrong? I guess, hypothetically, adding a police recruitment tag to a video of a cop kicking a teenage girl.

TWO: Ok, as someone who recently purchased a pair of tight, bright-red levis and clear lens way-farers, I can confidently confirm that this article correctly predicts future hipster trends.  Or not, whatever, I could care, right? (h/t the super sweet Stuff Hipsters Hate.  I love Tumblrs [Tumbls?])

THREE: Finally. Yacht Rock. Yes.

Kenny Loggins, you get in the fucking back of the group.  This is my picture.

Start with the rump? That’s usually where I get off.

ah hell, as long as I’m raiding their weblog:

Love the comment from youtuber singinglawnchair: “This sounds like if Kenny Loggins acquired a DUI on his record and had to write this song for community service”

Yes We Can

Yes We Can.

Cocktails are delicious, cocktail culture is kind of pretentious cool

This is reassuring to people like me, who, at 27, are still trying to break in to international espionage:  11 (famous, duh) people in the wrong career at age 30 (h/t The Daily What)

Live in California? Are not a felon? CAN I INTEREST YOU IN A PROPOSITION TO LEGALIZE MARIJUANA? Hooray Direct Democracy! Cons: Bankrupt State with approximately 87% unemployment, No Hot Lesbian Weddings.  Pros: Possibly legal marijuana

p.s. sorry for the long delay, but we’re working on a secret new feature that, if we pull it off will be awesome, but if not, its secret and you’ll never F’ing know.

Following up on today’s theme, here is a great time-waster:

Awful Library Books

The blog “is a collection of the worst library holdings. The items featured here are so old, obsolete, awful or just plain stupid that we are horrified that people might be . . . depending on the information.”

I don’t depend on information from my grandparents for those same reasons.  (J/K I LOVE MY GRANDPARENTS)

h/t The Boston Sports Guy

Hot off the success of “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies,” Editor Jason Rekulak has amalgamated a new smash mash-up: “Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters.”  Here is the awesome trailer:

Money quote from Rekulak interview: “Well, our monster-to-Austen ratio is higher than in the last book, about 60-40 (that’s 60 Austen, 40 me). That’s proportionally more monsters, swordfights, and submarines.”

This naturally led us to ask, what other literary masterpieces will undergo a re-working?  Rekulak was kind enough to send along a few pages from his new (old) projects.

I thought this was pretty cool.  Courtesy of The Daily What, a List of the Ten Oldest Still Inhabited Cities.  Topping the list is Damascus, Syria, which has existed in one form or another for 12,000 years.

 

Huh.  I always thought the oldest city was Palm Beach, Florida. (Zing*)

 

*DOYOUGETIT? THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE THERE ARE HELLAOLD!

 

p.s. It turns out the oldest continuously inhabited city in the continental U.S. actually is in Florida.

2) Man, first the kids with their sexting and now this?  I really juussst missed an awesome time to grow up.

Whatever, today’s 14 year olds just masturbate to whatever internet porn they can find.  There’s no skill in that.  In my day, there was an art to timing things jusssst right with the programming on MTV.  Hot dancing girls? Get ready! Cut away to a sweaty Alex Van Halen? Yikes, hold up or else you’re gay.

 

3) Some Band named “Lunar Sway” is playing in San Francisco on July 21.  Supposedly they are really good, but I’ve never heard/befriended/drank with them before, so I can’t say for sure.
